in order to talk to afghan women and children. pentagon correspondent barbara starr is following these developments for us this morning. where is the major opposition to this coming from, barbara? >> reporter: well, good morning, soledad. there are some groups that are opposing it because they have concerns about women serving in the military, frankly, and have had those concerns for years. but in the case of this, bipartisan support largely. once the joint chiefs endorsed the idea, hard to oppose them. nonetheless, senator john mccain is one of the senators articulating his view, his concern that rigorous physical standards be maintained if women are going to serve in dangerous units like infantry, special forces, then he is saying the rigorous standards must apply to them as well for everyone's safety in those types of situations. you know it's going to raise a really interesting prospect the next time the military goes on a raid to get somebody like osama bin laden, will women be along. soledad. >> so what do women think about this -- overall about lifting its ban? >> reporter
of the show, the pentagon today will announce that women will now be allowed to serve in full combat roles. at first they'll be phased into roles working as medics and manning artillery, but eventually they could serve in elite commando units directly in the line of fire. for the past ten years, u.s. military women have served at the front lines in both iraq and afghanistan but never in combat. 152 women have been killed in the course of both conflicts. of course, we've been talking around the table about this. there are some contrarian points of view. >> yeah, there's a piece on the op-ed page of "the wall street journal" this morning. ryan smith is a marine infantrymen that served in iraq. he writes about "the reality that awaits women in combat. societal norms are a reality, and their maintenance is important to most members of a society. despite the professionalism of marines, it would be zrakting and traumatizing to be forced to be naked in front of the opposite sex, particularly when your body has been ravaged by lack of hygiene. in the reverse, it would be painful to witness a membe

of energy in the world, needs to redouble its efforts. the pentagon is already moving in the right direction, but it's not just about saving money in the long term. it's providing operational flexibility and reducing velarde nurblet from inefficient and dangerous fossil fuels. those fuel tanker trucks in afghanistan and iraq might as well have had great big bull's eyes on them for terrorists. the military knows this, and we should give maximum support even in a time of gradually reducing pentagon budgets. this will pay dividends for defense and to the family budget if the pentagon gets it right. it's clear that america is ready and equal to this challenge. the president has signaled his interests in leadership. the question is whether congress is equal to the challenge, ready with innovation, cooperation and leadership. the speaker pro tempore: the chair recognizes the gentleman from texas, mr. poe, for five minutes. mr. poe: mr. speaker, in a remote region of algeria at an oil and gas facility in the dark of night before the sun rose, workers from all over the world were getting ready to si

? >> that is a good point. you may recall the pentagon was very concerned about this saying they would have to cut about $100 billion right off the bat. some of the officials went to the white house and said let's make a deal on this. there will be a lot of pressure to do that. republicans agreed to raise the debt ceiling. that took away a little bit of their leverage going into negotiations at the end of february. here comes paul ryan. where has he been? he is making this line in the sand now. i think the white house is concerned because this could hurt the economy going forward if we go through these deep cuts and right now the white house is saying we need to keep the economy moving. we have to keep all eyes on that and continue to have growth and jobs. there is concern for the white house. >> ryan took one of his famous charts on "meet the press." you can tell immediately what he thinks the problem is, more spending cuts are needed. paul ryan says increasing revenue is off the table for now. the gop, the tax hikes during the fiscal cliff stuff. do they do it again? >> he was also asked and sid
the 9/11 attacks. the hearing begins in a disagreement between the pentagon and the chief prosecutor in the case regarding the legality of some of the charges. attempts by the u.s. government to legitimatize these military tribunals have been complicated by the fact that the only two convictions of guantanamo bay prisoners via tribunals have been reversed by civilian appeals courts. the administration is also facing heat over its continued reliance on drone strikes. according to figures compiled by the london-based bureau of investigative journalism, the u.s. has conducted 362 drone strikes in pakistan since 2004 with 128 in 2010 alone. the program's covert nature has alarmed civil rights activists and the human rights council has now launched an investigation into drone attacks connected to civilian casualties. joining us now to discuss the war on terror is the director of the aclu, national security project, hannah. thanks for joining us. >> thank you for having me. >> this is a conversation that i think gradually is taking more of a role on center stage. especially with the appoin

of the pentagon, secretary of defense, secretary of defense panetta has said that he's going to lift the ban on women in combat. what's your thought on that? >> i think that i respect that judgment. i would emphasize that there are certain specialties that require certain physical capabilities and i would not bar women, for example, seal teams, okay? i would not bar them from them if that's the decision, but i hope that they would have to measure up to the same physical standards because these seals are the best example, they're a small unit. they have to depend on each other and i'm not saying that women can't perform that way i just hope that we would keep the same standard requirements for screening and eligibility to be a member particularly if some of our elite military units. >> greta: and another log jam issue in washington. one of my colleagues confirmed that speaker boyner told a group of republicans on the house side that president obama's focus is to annihilate the republican party. is that the collective viewpoint here in the republicans in the senate or not? >> greta, i've seen
. >> sean: now, some are applauding the pentagon decisions and others say this is a very dangerous idea. joining me now with reaction, a former pennsylvania congressman, three star a admiral, and heather mcdonald. all right, i'm not a conspiracy theorist, isn't it coincident, hillary clinton, after months of waiting and testimony, they announce they're going to come out with this, is that coincidental? >> well, there's a lot of background to this, i think, but that that's the case it's appalling because this is a decision with long-terms consequences that needs to be thought about more deeply. i would assume that this is more about the obama agenda of absolute equality. i keep hearing the justification for this is to improve women's chances of career advancement. i've not heard anybody make the argument that this is a way to maximize our combat effectiveness. >> sean: you talk about this on a column and national view online today and you go into some detail. you talk about it's people in close quarters. you talk about the differences between men and women, the obvious differences and yo

into a pentagon badly in need of more reform, more budget cutting, and who better to do that, than someone with the kind of credibility with the troops that chuck hagel has. >> chuck schumer, speaking of chucks, another chuck, ari, chuck schumer, as you know, a very strong supporter of israel, very tough on iran and its nuclear program. he had a private meeting with hagel, emerged strongly endorsing hagel, saying he'll vote to confirm him. you read that long statement that schumer put out on what he was told by hagel during the course of that private meeting. i rey sum that's reassuring. i assume that's reassuring to you. is it reassuring enough for republicans to vote to confirm him? >> no, i think hagel has broken the land speed record for the most apologies on a way to a hopeful confirmation. i've never heard of a nominee who has apologized to so many different people for so many different positions he's took over his career in order for him to get confirmed. i suspect this is more a confirmation conversion than anything heartfelt from hagel. that's why he's saying this. explaining away
